I want to explore the questions we need to be asking, the stories we need to hear and what exactly is the truth.

    Bress ‘N’ Nyam: Bless & Eat w/ Matthew Raiford

    Matthew Raiford was winning accolades  in the food world, traveling, writing amazing cookbooks,  meeting other foodie folks - but something was drawing him back to Georgia.

    His family has owned and operated Gilliard Farms in Burnswick, GA for centuries.  For context, this is the same part of the southeast where Ahmaud Arbery was brutally killed while jogging, the crime covered up until the public outcry grew to a zenith.  Food, culture and activism combine in Raiford’s talents and efforts.

    In this interview creator Charu Kumarhia and Raiford talk about their love of history and food.
